When it comes to spending their hard-earned cash, many of the wealthy and famous often aim for luxury. That is why many celebrities own massive estates that are considered some of the most expensive celebrity homes ever constructed.
Celebrities often own large homes due to either being in a high-security neighborhood or simply preferring privacy from paparazzi cameras. No matter the reason, these properties are worth their weight in gold.
J.Lo’s $28 million mansion
Singer/actress Miranda has just purchased an eight-acre home in Bel Air, California that she purchased back in 2016 from fellow celeb Sela Ward for $28 million, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Inside this French Country-style home, a grand staircase leads to an expansive living room with a fireplace and bar. The kitchen boasts stone walls as well as a central dining island lit by a rustic chandelier.
At this resort, guests are welcomed by an outdoor 100-seat amphitheater, an infinity pool, a putting green, and a private lake with a sandy beach.

Sean Combs’ $40 million mansion
Sean Combs, the hip-hop music mogul, and entrepreneur, is one of America’s wealthiest celebrities. His net worth has been estimated at $740 million due to investments in his clothing line, Ciroc vodka, and Bad Boy record label.
In September 2018, he purchased a brand-new mansion in Holmby Hills for $40 million. This European-style villa features an underwater lagoon-style swimming pool, grotto, and tunnel that leads to it. There is no giant animatronic dinosaur as you would expect from someone so excentric, but several interesting items are present.
It features eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a guest house. Other notable features include a gym, wine cellar, 35-seat theater, and spa pavilion.
Nile Niami himself designed and constructed this magnificent mega-mansion. Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland/Christie’s International Real Estate and Kurt Rappaport from Westside Estate Agency represented the seller.
Will Smith’s $42 million mansion
Will Smith is the highest-paid actor in the world and his wealth has enabled him to purchase several impressive properties. He owns a large home in Calabasas, California as well as an idyllic beach house in Hawaii.
The actor recently acquired a two-story motorhome nicknamed “The Heat”, which looks more like a mansion on wheels! Priced at $2.5 million, this luxurious vehicle boasts 14 TV screens, an expansive lounge area, a screening room, and a steam shower.
Further, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star has reportedly spent time in two homes outside the US; one was in Pennsylvania and another one was located in Hawaii.
The Smiths’ enormous compound in Calabasas, worth $42 million and taking seven years to construct, boasts 150 acres surrounded by lakes and a picturesque river that traverses the property.
Demi Moore’s $45 million penthouse
Demi Moore’s 17-room triplex penthouse at the San Remo in Manhattan has finally sold for an incredible $45 million – after she reduced her original asking price by $16 million! This was by far the largest sale ever for this prestigious West Side building.
On floors 26 to 28 of this iconic building, a celebrity penthouse sat. It featured stunning views of Central Park from its interior space of 7,500 square feet as well as 1,500 square feet of wraparound terraces.
As previously reported by The New York Times, Moore and her ex-husband Bruce Willis purchased this apartment in 1990 for an undisclosed amount. Subsequently, it was combined with the building’s mechanical and storage spaces above to form a triplex unit.
Real estate records reveal that M2 Trust has purchased this penthouse at a 40% discount from its original asking price, making it one of the most expensive celebrity homes in NYC.
